I'm officially an FN2 owner :)

Picked up my Civic Type R today in NHB, 58 plate with 34k on it!

Just got home, really chuffed with it!

Managed 38mpg for the 145 mile trip home driving it really steady! Need to go sample the vtec a bit more now

Welcome mate. I have to say you did well to restrain yourself. It's not easy not putting your foot down to hear the v-tec as soon as you get it.

Is 57 the optimum speed for fuel consumption then?

I was told if on a straight route (which my daily route is) to have your cruise control on 57mph as you see better mpg and it's correct I was seeing 29+ but it was boring so I have some fun and see 27-28 not much difference but on a long drive you will see well in the 30s

As for the MPG....stuck the cruise control on at 72mph then 52mph for approx 5 mile through some road works on the m6!

Best I had was 38.3, and been out to see some peeps since getting home and it's still at 37mpg!

Happy!
